Jerry Jeudy was arrested on Thursday after he was involved in an incident with the mother of his child, but the woman feels the case should be thrown out.

The alleged victim appeared in a Colorado courtroom on Friday and told the judge that Jeudy never made physical contact with her and she never felt threatened. She asked that the domestic violence criminal tampering charge against the star wide receiver be dismissed, according to TMZ.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Tyler Brown explained on Thursday that the domestic violence charge was only added due to Jeudy’s relationship with the woman, who is the mother of his 1-month-old daughter. The woman summoned police to keep the peace after Jeudy was accused of withholding the baby’s car seat and medical records. Jeudy allegedly told police he had taken the items because the woman had one of his phones and refused to return it to him.

A judge imposed a mandatory protection order on Jeudy, but the alleged victim did not request a no-contact order. Jeudy spent the night in jail on Thursday despite police saying there was “no physical contact” between him and the woman.

Jeudy’s lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, said Friday that Jeudy should have never been arrested.

Jeudy was charged with second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer.

The 23-year-old Jeudy is entering his third NFL season. He was limited to 10 games last season due to an ankle injury he suffered early in the year.

Police have released new details about the arrest of Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Tyler Brown said Thursday that Jeudy was involved in an incident with the mother of his one-month-old daughter. The woman summoned police to keep the peace. Jeudy was accused of withholding the baby’s car seat and medical records, as well as the woman’s wallet. Jeudy allegedly told police he had taken the items because the woman had one of his phones and refused to return it to him.

Brown added that the domestic violence charge against Jeudy was added because the woman was the mother of his child. Jeudy is not accused of physical violence, and there was “no physical contact” between Jeudy and the woman.

Jeudy was arrested Thursday and was held at the Arapahoe County Jail. In addition to the domestic violence charge, Jeudy has been charged with second-degree criminal tampering for allegedly withholding the car seat and medical records.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was arrested in Colorado on Thursday.

Jeudy was taken into custody by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office just before noon on Thursday. Police said he was charged with second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer. The charge is a misdemeanor.

Second-degree criminal tampering in Colorado is defined as tampering “with property of another with intent to cause injury, inconvenience, or annoyance to that person or to another or if he knowingly makes an unauthorized connection with property of a utility.” The domestic violence enhancer is a result of Jeudy’s relationship with the person who made the allegations.

The 23-year-old Jeudy is entering his third NFL season. He was limited to 10 games last season due to an ankle injury he suffered early in the year.

The Broncos drafted Jeudy with the 15th overall pick in 2020. The former Alabama star has 90 catches, 1,323 yards and three touchdowns in two seasons.

Broncos star went through funny range of emotions over QB news

One Denver Broncos star definitely had a roller coaster of a day with all of the developments to emerge on the quarterback front.

Earlier in the day Tuesday, the news broke that Aaron Rodgers had decided to return to the Green Bay Packers on a new contract. The reigning back-to-back MVP had been heavily pursued by the Broncos, who were even said to be a finalist for Rodgers’ services.

Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy appeared to react to the Rodgers news by tweeting an annoyed emoji.

Fortunately for Denver, they were able to swing a trade just a few hours later for longtime Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. The blockbuster deal saw the Broncos give up several players and draft picks for the nine-time Pro Bowler Wilson.

Uncoincidentally, Jeudy’s mood suddenly brightened. He tweeted a smiling emoji and the message “Oh we lit” in apparent response to the Wilson news.

The 22-year-old Jeudy was limited to ten games last season with an ankle injury but figures to be Denver’s No. 1 receiver when healthy. While Jeudy won’t be catching passes from Rodgers, getting another upper-tier QB and Super Bowl champion in Wilson is a pretty darn good consolation. It will also probably make Jeudy a lot happier than he was with his previous quarterback situation.

Jerry Jeudy carted off field after suffering apparent ankle injury

Jerry Jeudy ankle

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was carted off the field during Sunday’s game against the New York Giants with an apparent ankle injury.

Jeudy was being tackled by Giants cornerback James Bradberry when his ankle rolled beneath Bradberry as he went down. Jeudy was in obvious pain and could not walk off the field himself. There was no initial word on his status aside from the fact that he was being evaluated for a “lower leg injury.”

Jeudy was initially ruled to have fumbled on the play, but that was overturned on review and the Broncos kept the ball.

The 22-year-old wide receiver was entering his second NFL season after racking up 856 receiving yards and three touchdowns as a rookie. He was expected to be a big part of the Denver passing attack in 2021, and had already pulled in six catches for 72 yards before suffering the injury.

Vic Fangio weighs in on Jerry Jeudy’s drop issues

Jerry Jeudy

The Denver Broncos are sticking by wide receiver Jerry Jeudy amid his issues with drops.

Jeudy dropped five passes in Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, with two that proved particularly costly. The rookie receiver has had drop issues for much of the season, and it became the major talking point after Sunday’s game.

Coach Vic Fangio advocated a back-to-basics approach to getting Jeudy right and improving his confidence.

“Jerry has proven he has good hands,” Fangio said, via Mike Klis of 9News. “Obviously that wasn’t evident yesterday so it’s not a question whether he can catch or not. He’s just got to get back to the basics of focusing a little bit more, make sure he has it and not let anything distract him through the process of catching the ball.

“He’s proven he has good hands, which is different than some guys that have inconsistent hands and are always going to be a 50-50 catcher throughout their career.”

Jeudy was the 15th overall selection in last April’s NFL Draft. He’s put up decent rookie numbers despite the drops, catching 47 passes for 716 yards and two touchdowns.

5 biggest disappointments of NFL Week 16

Jerry Jeudy

The second-to-last week of the NFL season brought with it some real shockers, and further muddled the playoff picture in some ways. You need only check out the NFC East to see that. It also means expectations are high for everyone still in the race — and some simply couldn’t produce when it counted.

Here are five big disappointments from NFL Week 16.

Jared Goff, QB, Rams

It continues to look like Goff’s excellent 2018 was the outlier, not the norm. He once again struggled, this time against a Seattle secondary that hadn’t done much all season until recently. Goff was held to 234 yards and failed to find the end zone, costing the Rams a shot at the NFC West title and leaving some doubt regarding their playoff hopes as well. Frankly, this injury may be the most notable thing that happened to him Sunday.

Dwayne Haskins, QB, Washington

One has to wonder if Haskins has an NFL future at this point, not just a Washington one. Haskins was so dreadful Sunday that he was benched in favor of Taylor Heinicke in the second half, and Heinicke looked significantly better. Haskins, on the other hand, turned over the ball three times and threw for just 154 yards in a game that could have sealed the NFC East title. Then he initially blew off the media to conclude a week that saw him flaunt COVID protocols. That’s about as bad as it gets.

Jerry Jeudy, WR, Broncos

Jeudy may still have a bright future in the NFL, but this was a brutal showing from the rookie wide receiver. In a three-point loss, Jeudy dropped five passes. One would have resulted in a touchdown, and one would have put the Broncos in field goal range with the chance to force overtime. Jeudy has had a lot of drops this year, but this one game really magnified his struggles. He has work to do this offseason to start fixing them.

Younghoe Koo, K, Falcons

For a while on Sunday, it really did look like the Falcons were going to shock the Chiefs on the road. Even late on, it looked like Atlanta had a good shot at forcing overtime. Then Younghoe Koo stepped in and missed a 39-yard field goal to cost the Falcons the tie. The worst part was this was just a straight-up miss — the snap and hold appeared good. Koo had missed only one field goal on the season coming into Sunday, which just made this even harder to take.

Baker Mayfield, QB, Browns

Sunday was not all Mayfield’s fault. He had no wide receivers thanks to COVID-19 protocols, and the gameplan was scrambled at the last minute. Plus, one has to wonder what kind of gameplan had Mayfield throwing the ball 53 times under these circumstances. That said, so much of the onus was on the quarterback to deliver, which is why he couldn’t fumble three times and lose two of them. The second turnover was particularly strange. The Browns had to play perfectly on offense given their limitations. The quarterback turning the ball over twice simply wasn’t an option.

Jerry Jeudy struggles with drops against Chargers

Jerry Jeudy

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy has had a rough year with dropped passes, and it got worse on Sunday.

Jeudy had a series of drops during Sunday’s game, including one that cost his team dearly. Two clear drops came in the first half, and there were three more in the second half. The fourth drop of the game would have been a touchdown, making matters worse. That drop forced the Broncos to settle for a field goal in a game they ultimately lost by three points. The fifth would have potentially put the Broncos in field goal range late to attempt a game-tying kick.

Jeudy was visibly angry with himself after the touchdown drop, sitting on the sideline with his head in his hands.

The drops were so consistently bad that Associated Press reporter Greg Beacham described Jeudy’s game as “one of the worst games I’ve ever seen an NFL receiver have.”

It’s not the first time Jeudy has had issues with drops this year. In fact, it’s been an ongoing problem, as stats demonstrate.

Jeudy spoke with the media after the game and owned his poor performance.

Jeudy is a rookie, so this isn’t necessarily the end of the world. However, it’s clear that he has drop issues that need to be addressed. He’s been frustrated this season, perhaps with his quarterback, but it’s pretty clear he should point the finger at himself as well.

Jerry Jeudy appears to take shot at Drew Lock in deleted tweet

Jerry Jeudy

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is understandably frustrated with the way things have gone over the past several weeks, and he appeared to take a shot at his quarterback and/or the team following Sunday night’s loss.

Jeudy was targeted just four times and caught one pass in Denver’s 22-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Shortly after the game ended, he sent what seemed like a very sarcastic tweet and then deleted it.

That may have been Jeudy’s way of taking a swipe at Broncos quarterback Drew Lock, who threw two more interceptions to bring his total to 13 picks in nine games. Lock’s passer rating of 67.1 is the worst mark among all NFL quarterbacks.

Of course, Jeudy could have also been criticizing Vic Fangio and the Broncos’ coaching staff. Whatever the case, he has just four catches over the past three games and is obviously tired of running routes without seeing any passes his way.

Jeudy had a funny reaction to the Broncos losing all of their quarterbacks next week, but it doesn’t sound like he’s laughing anymore.

DeVonta Smith almost made Jerry Jeudy request come true with huge game

DeVonta Smith

DeVonta Smith absolutely exploded in Alabama’s 55-17 win over LSU on Saturday, and he nearly made Jerry Jeudy’s request come true.

Smith caught eight passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns in the Crimson Tide’s convincing win over the Tigers. Jeudy, who was teammates with Smith last year and is a rookie for the Denver Broncos this season, shared a screenshot of a text conversation he had with Smith before the game.

Jeudy told Smith he wanted him to gain 300 yards against LSU.

Jeudy also knew that Bama was going to take the pain to LSU. He tweeted the following message before the game even started:

This is a weak LSU team and a dominant Alabama team. Many folks saw this beatdown coming. For Bama, the 55 points were the most they’ve ever scored against LSU.

Even Nick Saban couldn’t help but praise Smith after the game, saying the senior wide receiver has been about as valuable to the team as any player they’ve had at Alabama.

The Bama players had a good time taking it to LSU. They considered it revenge for what happened last year.
